Write-a-Thon Team: Witches' Insurance Agency
I'm the author of Hole in the Middle, a magical realist, feminist medical fantasy for young adults (pubbed by Soho Teen in fall 2018). It was inspired by a mediocre date and the unrelated collapse of my left lung. My work has been featured on LeVar Burton Reads, Lightspeed, Apex (RIP), the Pushcart Prize anthology, The Best American Nonrequired Reading, One Story, and elsewhere. I graduated from Clarion in 2016, and had the pleasure of serving as the visiting fiction writer at UT Austin this spring. I have a new Clarion story forthcoming in Lightspeed this August -- check it out!
I play with genres and write for teens. Asexual as hugs, feminist as fuck.
I'm hard at work on a new novel that is creeping me the HECK out (and is such fun!). This Write-a-Thon, I will generate and add 25,000 new words to the manuscript.
A million billion dollars so Clarion can go on forever. (But seriously, I don't know. If you can make your rent and donate to RAICES Texas and still have some dollars left to share with the future of really good SFF writing, please do! It would be very nice.)
Alas, the Clarion Write-a-Thon has ended, with $7,175.73 raised so far! However, we are still accepting donations. Thank you for your support!
